Wow! That seems amazingly high to me. Following Robin's precepts, you
must have seen some evidence that I missed. What collection of alien
contact reports have enough plausible details to make you go that high?

I must admit that I haven't studied the issue, and so have only been
exposed to third- and fourth-hand accounts of what has appeared in the
Enquirer since I read one of Von Daniken's books in high school.

And in case I missed something earlier in the conversation, is there some
specific referent to "those reports", or is it a generic for all the
popularly-known reports lumped together?
